Default My first Fisker in the wild siting!

So in the 12 months I have had my Karma I had yet to see one "in the wild" outside of a Fisker event or near the dealer. And last night, as I was walking to dinner, I saw a silver Karma near Union Square in SF - how amazingly beautiful with lights on and in motion !!! And so quiet! Now I can fully appreciate why we get all the stares and attention!

I've seen at least five in the wild so far (but then, we have almost 150 driving around in this small country) and every time it's such a special moment. Then you realize what an amazing sight the people around your car are having.

I used to see Ray Lane's Karma driving down Sand Hill fairly often. On occasion I see one on El Camino, but with a dealership near by, those might be test drives. Saw one in San Rafael when I had an occasion to be up there. So not uncommon here in the Bay Area (along with all the other plug-ins).

Doug - if you see a Special Edition on El Camino near the dealership it's not a test drive, it's me. I go past the dealer 2-3x/day...they should give me promo $$$ at this point....

Cool! It is quite a head turner on the road. Probably the EV I most often see around here is the Nissan Leaf whose styling is, well, unfortunate.

Special Edition? You mean Signature?

I believe I saw the same car....parked 2 blocks from union square near the Nikko hotel where I was staying...whenever I passed there was a crowd standing around it, gawking.

And yesterday back here in LA, I saw another owner Model S - metallic gray. So I sped up to get beside it - funny that all the other cars around it were staring at my Karma - I honked, the Model S driver looked over, but a little confused (did he not know what a Fisker was? Perhaps he wasn't used to attention driving the Model S?) - he got on the 405 off Hawthorne Blvd... and I looped back to go home. Its amazing how easily the Model S blends with the other cars - unnoticeable and mistakeable for a Lexus, Jaguar, Mazda, etc.
